Jae Joong, through a video greeting, promised a lot of surprises for his fans for this one-night only event in Manila.

Filipino fans can’t help but be excited to see the versatile star live. Barely two weeks to go before the much-awaited event, here is a list of five things fans in the Philippines look forward to experience as the idol graces Manila.

1. Kim Jae Joong greetings: “Hello Manila. Mahal kita”

Philippines waited for 14 years to see Jae Joong in Manila. We are anticipating massive giddiness and squeals when the singer-actor’s out-of-this-world visuals makes its appearance. (We are utterly convinced that Jae Joong holds the key to the fountain of youth and beauty.)

But we are keeping our fingers crossed to hear Jae Joong greet everyone in English or, better yet, in the country’s native language.

We will be content with a simple “Magandang gabi!”, “Salamat”, “Mabuhay”, and “Mahal kita.” Something like “petmalu”, “lodi”, “werpa”, and other unique Filipino phrases will also be most welcome.

But, who are we kidding? We might be drowning in utmost kilig to even hear him properly.

2. Kim Jae Joong singing and dancing live!

Relying on fancam no more! We can finally see Jae Joong sing and listen to his soothing voice live. Filipino fans are all dying to hear Jae Joong sing songs from his solo releases including “One Kiss” from his first solo mini album I, “Just Another Girl” from his first studio album WWW, and “Love You No More” from his second studio album No.X.

But, our eyes and ears might explode with feels when the singer-actor belts “I’ll Protect You” from Protect the Boss OST.

 3. Chef Jae Joong

Jae Joong is not only a total performer and a versatile artist. He’s also good at cooking! And Filipino fans would like to have the opportunity to test his cooking skills themselves. Hands up  if you want to see Jae Joong saute some onions and garlic or cut some vegetables on stage!

While we are at it, we won’t mind if he sports some apron to complete the scenario.

Can we all take a moment and imagine Jae Joong cooking adobo or sinigang?

4. A Special Fan signing event for lucky fans!

The Philippines is lucky to finally check “See Jae Joong Live” off their bucket list. However, events organizer Fangirlasia is brewing something more special for 300 lucky fans.

A special fan signing event where 300 lucky fans will get the opportunity to meet the singer-actor face-to-face and have their posters signed will be held. Chances will be raffled off for those who have bought tickets since day 1 of ticket selling up to November 19. This is definitely an icing on the cake any fan would wish to experience.

5. Jae Joong to sing an OPM song (Original Filipino Music)

We might be getting more than Filipino words as Fangirlasia hinted on a possibility of Jae Joong singing an OPM song. In the official Facebook event page of the fan meeting, the organizer asked fans for suggestions. In minutes, the post was flooded with hundreds of song requests.

It seems this segment will be a much anticipated part of Jae Joong’s Manila fan meeting.
